Yule be full of Christmas cheer in no time as tickets for the widely anticipated annual Evening Express Carol Concert have gone on sale.
One of the top events of the North-east festive season, the concert has spread Christmas joy over the years since it began in 1967.
For the 2016 concert the spectacular has a new venue and two shows. Taking place in St Mark’s Church on Rosemount Viaduct, there will be a show on Tuesday, December 6, and Wednesday, December 7, starting at 7pm.
Dozens of young people are preparing to take to the stage in less than two weeks for the event.
Both shows will be performed by different schools and groups so ensure you pick the right concert if you are looking to see your child perform.
Torry Academy head teacher Jenny Cranna, who has put together the concert programme for the past two years, said the audience is in for a treat.
She said: “I’m really delighted to be helping with the Evening Express Carol Concert this year in St Mark’s Church. I’m sure the audience will love the diverse and exciting programme of music which will be performed each night.
“The talent of all the youngsters involved must be commended.”
The concert has seen a number of memorable performances across the years.
Tunes from across the globe have made their way onto the programme across the decades, with songs from as far afield as Australia and the Caribbean, plus a 1993 appearance from Aberdeen Dutch School, which closed in 2007.
Mackie Academy concert band is set to perform at the Tuesday night concert and will be joined by community groups and city schools.
On the Wednesday night Aberdeen City Youth Wind Band will return to delight those in attendance.
Tickets for the event cost £8 or £6 for concessions and are available from The Box Office at His Majesty’s Theatre.
